Only two days after a judge found the company guilty of "willfully infringing" the Universal Music Group's copyrights, Internet music company has announced that it will re-launch its service starting in a few weeks. lets users register, or "beam" as calls it, their CDs with the company's more than 80,000 CD database, which then allows users to listen to the songs they own from any computer with an Internet connection.

Universal successfully argued that violated Universal copyrights by including an estimated 4,700 CDs in the company's song database without permission. has been deactivated since April.

The decision to resume the service was made because the company already had agreements in place with four other major record labels allowing the service to offer CDs from those company's catalogues and because "consumers were clamouring for it," according to an spokesman.

Universal's music makes up only about 20 percent of the music database, the spokesman said.

The renewed service will include all of's CD database, with the exception of any Universal CDs.

It is unclear how's reactivation of will affect its appeal of the verdict.

Universal had asked for US$450 (£310 million in damages). Judge Jed Rakoff declined to award that amount, the maximum allowed under the law, and instead ruled 6 September that must pay Universal $118 million (£81 million) or $25,000 (£17,240) per CD.

The amount may be adjusted after it is determined exactly how many of Universal's CDs included in its service.

The other four "major labels," Warner Brothers Music Group, EMI, BMG Entertainment and Sony Music Entertainment settled their suits against for an estimated $20 million (£13.79 million) each.

The settlements allow to include CDs from those label's back catalogues in the service.
